Like all other electrical and electronic gadgets, laptop computers produce a certain amount of heat. It's natural and unavoidable and, in most cases, not somethign for you to worry about.
However, overheating can be a problem. If your laptop overheats, it may not works so well and its working life will be severely reduced.
How can you tell the difference between normal heating and overheating? Here are a few signs that you may need a laptop cooling pad:
- Your laptop is too hot to use on your knee after just a short period of operation.
- If you use your laptop on a hard surface, like a desk or workstation top, the worktop heats up a lot - or even discolors.
- Your laptop cooling fan is almost always in operation.
- Some software programs or games cause your laptop to heat up so much that it shuts down.
If you suffer from one or more of the above when using your laptop, then a laptop cooling pad may be a smart investment for you.
